Sh*## man!

Seems like two huge opposite waves turned into stone! Was it a cave earlier? Or made by some kind of lava flow?

The Subway started its life as a regular slot canyon, however water began to seep down through the weak base layers at the bottom (you can still see water and moss streaks on both sides). As a result, this action worked to calve the sides away, contributing to its fantastic shape.
